Behind the Legion Post

No surprise here: I walked around the back of the American Legion to see whatever I could see. And I found a little array of chairs and a nice tree shadow. It was worth the 142* extra steps.

*Estimated amount. I actually have no idea.

Andy’s fiesta

Even though Andy’s claims to have just about anything you could need (Cocktails! Curios! Restaurant! Meeting Rooms! Drive-up Window!), I think the availability of all of those things is exaggerated. Which is, of course, my favorite thing about it.

Really, though, what’s the point of even getting this close to an abandoned business if you don’t try and have some fun shooting reflections?

Crenellated (with lights)

If you think about Lubbock at all – and, really, why would you? – you probably don’t think about it as a location for castles, with towers topped with crenellation (to make it easier to fend off attackers!), do you?

And yet, here we are.

Not really! This is just some goofy thing built on the corner of a golf course office/clubhouse down the street from my house. I am pretty sure that underneath the stonework and fancy stuff, it’s just a regular metal building.

the empty part

Last year I attended a conference in New Orleans; after a day or two all the people and noise and commotion started to get the better of me. And then I found sanctuary in the far end of the convention center.
